The following are the main approaches used by a physiotherapist:

  • Education and advice: The physiotherapist advises reducing the risk of injury or pain. If the patient has back pain, the physiotherapist advises good posture, appropriate carrying and lifting techniques, and avoiding prolonged standing and stretching.
  • Movement and exercise: The physiotherapist also recommends exercises to improve function and mobility. These exercises include activities that improve the function of the whole body or a specific area. The physiotherapist also advises the patients to correctly use mobility aids, such as walking sticks or crutches.
  • Therapy: The physiotherapists use their hands or machines to mobilize, manipulate, or massage the tissues. It improves blood circulation, promotes relaxation, reduces pain and inflammation, and improves movements.

Stretching and strength training are also important for patients after a stroke. The physiotherapist customizes the intervention and notes the results of each therapy. Based on the response, he may continue with the therapy or use an alternative therapy. For instance, some patients prefer hydrotherapy, while others respond well to machine exercises.
